For anyone who knows the resort it is arguably the most “prestigious” on the Costa del Sol and we have today received instruction on a wonderful 4 bedroom villa that is due to be repossessed. Plot of almost 7,500 sq.m and built area of 675 sq.m. On the market for €6.6 million BUT and this is a BIG BUT, there is serious scope for heavy negotiation. http://ow.ly/9jHJF
“So three of our 5 inquiries that came in yesterday, no word of a lie, a Mrs America looking in Italy, Mr German from the UAE looking in France and Miss Brazil looking in Spain, I always said we were an internationally diverse luxury property company!”—
This amazing property is a typical Ibiza country home. Recently restored with loving care, respect for its history and furnished with all the modern conveniences. It has a license to work as an agroturismo (country hotel) & enjoys a good reputation across Ibiza.
Another one of those gems from the due diligence back catalogue, such imagination, so inventive.... love it!
Good day my friend,
I really have a secret deal to reveal to you, I searched out your ad from an online portal so I can establish a contact and discuss a business proposal with you. I am Trained Medic and Captain with the United States Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) in Pakistan.
Based on the United States legislative and executive decision for withdrawing troops from Pakistan, I have been deployed to come and work in your country’s military base soonest. Our mission is to help beef up security in terrorist targeted states,mostly the United States and the European Union on the war against terrorism. I will be in need of houses. for myself and for charity programs, that is why I contacted you.
On the other hand, I want to inform you that I have in my possession the sum of 16.8 million USD cash, which was recovered from one of our raids on terrorists here in Pakistan because they keep most of their money at home for evil activities which they normally get through illegal deals on crude oil. Based on the suffering we undergo here, some of us do meet such luck. It happened that I went for this raid with the men in my unit and I decided to take that as my share for my stress here in this evil land filled with suicide bombers. I deposited this money with a Red Cross agent informing him that we are making contact for the real owner of the money because I can’t keep it in the military camp. It is under my power to approve whoever comes forth for this money.I wish to invest this money in real estate business,and little of it for charity purposes in Turkey, where we have about 3 million Iraqi refugees and Sudan where we have currently the highest number of refugees displaced as a result of war.You need to visit such places. I want to invest the money on stock-fish from Norway for this refugees because, based on my experience on battle ground in this places,they lack a lot of fish and meat to add to their meager and unpalatable meals which they get in little quantity just to keep them living, until God knows when the problem ends. Instead of allowing this terrorists to get the money and spend it on purchasing arms illegally from Asians and North Korea, it’s better channeled to saving the world. I cannot move this money to the United States because I will be in Europe for about 3years when i will be redeployed for my last services before retirement, so I need someone I could deal with. If you accept, I will transfer the money to Europe where you will be the beneficiary, because I am a uniformed person and I cannot be parading such an amount, so I need to present someone as the beneficiary.
I am an American and an intelligence officer at that, so I have a 100% authentic means of transferring the money through diplomatic courier service . I just need your acceptance and all is done. Please, if you are interested in this transaction, I will give to you the complete details you need for us to carry out this deal successfully. I decided to find someone that is real and not imaginary, and that is why I went to a secured internet site where I can be sure that the person is real. I believe I can trust you. Where we are now, we can only communicate through our military communication facilities which is secured so nobody can monitor our emails, then I can explain in details to you. I will only reach you through email, because our calls might be monitored, I just have to be sure whom I am dealing with.If you are interested, please send me your personal mobile number so I can call you for further inquiries when I am out of our military network. I am writing from a fresh email account so if you are not interested do not reply to this mail and please delete this message, if no response after 3days I will then search for someone else.
I’m doing this on trust, you should understand and you should know that as a trained military expert I will always play safe in case you are the bad type, but I pray you are not. 16.8 million USD is a lot of money which is the dream of anyone. I wait for your contact details so we can go on. In less than 5days the money should have been registered in your name and delivered to you and I will come over for my money.I will give to you 30% of the total sum and 70% is for my dream. I hope I’m been fair on this deal. Please get back to me so i can send you more details and some documents we need to carry on.
Please support those running the London Marathon for the PACE Centre
In life you tend not to get involved in things until you are emotionally attached to them, I remember getting up on a Sunday morning to watch the London Marathon in excitement, not really grasping the stories behind it and the dedication involved in such a challenge. It was only when my sister Milou ran the Marathon two years ago did I discover the emotion connected to it. It was the first time I have attended the event but as you stand in the crowd and speak to the spectators and soak up the atmosphere you realise that every single person has a heartfelt story to tell, and all our willing on their friends, colleagues and family who are all there for a special cause, whether it is a voyage of self discovery or a way of raising funds for a charity close to their hearts.
So why am I writing this appeal today, well, it is a big part of our life…. Our daughter Maddie, was born with a number of complications which led to her being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy (CP), Maddie has one of the worst types, I think the realisation sinks as you write something like this, she is unable to utilise any of her limbs and she can only communicate using eye pointing and ahhs and umms!
However behind her physical disability she is a bright and charming (and beautiful) little girl with a cheeky sense of humour and a smile like no other! Something we would never have discovered without the PACE Centre had we relied soley on the Local Authority.
With all children you have to make big decisions, one of those is the correct schooling for your child, many of you have made that choice, whether it is private education or faith schools, for us if was different we wanted to choose a school that would help Maddie reach her full potential, we realised that under this category it was very much like faith schools versus public school debate – two very different methods of treating children with CP, Conductive Education or the Bobath Method of education.
During this search for a school we discovered the PACE Centre, when we originally tried out Maddie at the day nursery our expectations were somewhat skeptical from people that had a choice thrust upon them, but what we discovered was a team of dedicated professionals that started to get the best out of Maddie. Before joining the school Maddie was unable to communicate, now she uses eye pointing, she was unable to sit aided, now she sits aided and she certainly was not able to ride a trike – guess what…. she can now do that too! See the video for yourself here.
Throughout her first year at the school we started to see the potential, but as with all education, issues emerged in terms of where we wanted our daughter to be educated and where the Local Authority wanted her to be educated, based on cost! This led to a year-long battle with the local authority (LA) to get Maddie granted a placement at the PACE Centre, as opposed to their easy local “Special Needs School”, which was clearly inappropriate for Maddie, we won initially, the LA appealed this decision and then we lost on appeal! To give you an insight into this battle we had a local authority stating that Maddie had made 0% progress in 12 months (its on record), when it was clear on a video that she was doing more than she had ever done before, this came from her physiotherapist who knew her from birth, we felt betrayed and we all worked out very quickly who was pulling this ladies strings, safe to say we no longer let this woman see our child.
Heartache… yes! And stress… the worst kind! All because the Local Authority wanted to save what is to them a minuscule amount of money per year. When they could put resources into catching benefit cheats and reallocating this money to vulnerable children. It was also noted that over 20 members of the local authority were involved in the case, which in reality could have been sorted in a meeting of 3-4 people, imagine the money they would have saved from employing less and being a bit more proactive in the workplace instead of worrying about impressing their superiors so not to loose their own jobs!
It got worse, once we had lost the tribunal we received a letter from the council stating that they no longer had anything to do with Maddie on an educational front (might as well been a photocopy) and as we were now privately educating our daughter they did not need to help get her too and from school every day, for an extra £20 per day! Unbelievable!
Just as we thought all hope was lost and Maddie would have to join the local school we had a very emotional call from the Head Mistress of the PACE Centre – who offered Maddie a Charity place to our delight, we jumped at the opportunity and Maddie has now a place at the school for the next two years at the least and we hope well into the future. This place comes with a ‘caveat’ that we continue to work hard to raise funds so Maddie’s place remains secure and the school continues to thrive without the resources the local authority are prepared to donate. Further LA cut backs means that schools like Maddie’s are directly effected.
None of this would have been possible without your generous donations and support, whether it is through your own fundraising or donations, as with all sponsorship, the general attitude can be of, well I sponsored them once, why do it again, it is the same for all charities, your support this year, helps this year, so don’t just look at this as a one off – look at this as a yearly contribution, we all give to Children in Need, Text Santa, Sports Relief, the amount of money that finds its way to PACE from these events is small regrettably. One of my close friends said to me recently that we were not the only ones affected by Maddie, they were directly (they have to listen to me after-all) and their children are growing up to be more tolerant to such conditions. I hope you can show your support this year and into the future.
Remember it isn’t just Maddie that goes to the PACE Centre there are many other children and families that have been touched by this wonderful school, we have seen children that have entered the school like Maddie did a year ago unable to communicate, leave aged 12 with the opportunity to go into a mainstream school.
